Speaking of which, all 27 or so surviving episodes of "Marge and Jeff" are public domain yet no company has ever put them out on DVD....but they are certainly public domain.

Yeah, there's a lot of PD things that aren't on DVD.

For example, I read that 90%-95% of US films from the 1910s are lost, but considering the HUGE output of films during that era (they made films like Ford made cars), that still leaves a lot of films that survive but aren't on home video.

Who knows, maybe there are some forgotten classics hidden in the vaults.
